Much better organized this year. Bigger and better. Honestly though last year we went during the day into twilight and it was better to view than at night. At night pictures suck you either get faces or the colors of the ice but not both....More

Worth a visit but make sure to go on a very cold day, when I went part of the place was melting! Apart from that they have very nice lighting as well fire performers when I went.
